Individual Theory Coaching & Tuition

We do offer individual or small group coaching and tuition on all of our theory courses. This can be a full course but more usually students need a refresher on courses previously completed or where following an online syllabus may need additional training on specific aspects

Cost is US $385 per day or $50 per hour. Please enquire by clicking on the 'Contact Us!' button on the right.

RYA Radar

Now commonplace on both sailing and motor boats, Radar is an invaluable aid for pilotage, navigation and for collision avoidance. However, it is only useful in the hands of a knowledgeable and experienced operator. This one day course provides the knowledge for you to then gain the experience.

This course is ideal for those working up to Yachtmaster or Advanced Powerboat and candidates should have a basic understanding of the navigation and the collision regulations.

Because radar is an invaluable aid, this course includes lifetime access to an approved radar simulator.

What better way to see our picturesque island than from your very own luxury motor yacht for the day?

Private Motor Boat Charters

There is a swim platform at the back, allowing for easy access to and from the water.

As with all Ondeck trips we try to get you involved, so if you would like to try some boat handling and maybe a training course the opportunity is there.

An open bar is available and on full day charters we include a local lunch in the price with premium options available.

Private Sailing Charters

We offer half day and full day charters. Half days can be morning (9am - 1pm) or afternoon (1.30pm - 5.30pm) and a full day is typically 9am - 5 pm. As a training school we encourage guests to take part in all aspects of sailing the yacht but if chilling out is your thing then no problem!

The yacht is a 40ft sailing yacht that can take 6 guests comfortably up to a maximum of 8. From our base in English Harbour the area is both historic and dramatic. A half day would allow a sail to Carlisle Bay for example and a swim and drink stop. On a full day you can get further up the west coast or to Green Island.

Itineraries are weather dependent. Cost is $625 for a half and $1195 for a full day for up to 4 persons.

Own Boat Courses and Tuition

We do offer own boat tuition and it can be very popular as it allows you to still achieve RYA qualifications in a familiar environment.

It can be useful to those who have just got a new vessel or for students who wish to improve any aspect of their skills. We can either follow the RYA syllabus for whichever course is most appropriate or we can offer ad hoc training at your own pace from 1 day to week

It is also popular with families and we can do a mix of Day Skipper and Competent Crew students or, for more advanced students, RYA Yachtmaster Offshore.

Your vessel must meet basic safety standards which we can run through and advise on.

Cost is US $385 per day plus any training materials and this covers from 1-5 students.
